In August 2014 I took on a new client who was training for Ironman Arizona. Just a couple weeks later over Labor Day weekend, she was out on a long bike ride and was hit by a car and was unable to compete in her first Ironman race. Through much physical therapy, hard work, perseverance and determination, she has made a comeback and is training for 2 Ironman events this year. Ironman Arizona will be her redemption, and she has asked me to join the journey with her. In doing so, I get to be part of fundraising for the Ironman Foundation. Not only do I get to support my friend in her efforts to complete this race, I get to support others in the community as well. I will get to see her cross that finish line, healthy and strong, and become a 2x Ironman finisher in the same year!
All money raised through the TEAM IMF program will benefit The IRONMAN Foundation, and specifically - the Community Fund Program. This program benefits those in the communities where IRONMAN events are held, by providing charitable support to a variety of local non-profit organizations that recognize citizens in need and provide support to the local community.
Within those communities, The IRONMAN Foundation will provide grant funding opportunities to non-profit organizations, while also working with community leaders to identify projects that will benefit the community and provide funding to support those initiatives. The IRONMAN Foundation has provided funding opportunities of nearly twenty nine million dollars to numerous non-profit beneficiaries worldwide.
